Duro stands for powerful, sturdy and enduring – and these are the strong points of this series. The VCP/UCP Duros are very robust and versatile high- speed machining centres using advanced technolo- gies. They are suitable for a large number of differ- ent applications - from powerful roughing jobs to fine finishing tasks on 3, 4 or even 5 simultaneous axes.

With a Mikron machining centre you are making an outstanding invest- ment, because you may justifiably expect the best solutions from Mikron, the leading spe- cialist for metal cutting machining: the highest degree of technological progress, machine performance, quality and service available. Its pioneering role in high-speed machining and spindle technology alone already proves that with Mikron you are acquiring a stake in the future.

One example is the new Duro series with the two 3-axis machines VCP 800W Duro, VCP 1000 Duro, and the 5-axis version, UCP 800 Duro. The intelligent machine concept of this most robust of all Mikron high-performance machining centres is based on a modular sys- tem of proven components that guarantees functional reliability and short delivery times. The right worktables, motor spindles, process lubrication cooling systems and other options for your requirements can be set up on the sturdy machine base. With a machine from the Duro series, you obtain tailor-made maximum performances in productivity, precision and long-term reliability, even in the case of limit- ed space conditions.

Bases for precision during the whole life of the machine

The large and sturdy machine base is the robust core of this machining centre. It combines rigidity, stability and extremely good vibration absorption. Onto this, the three-axis unit is constructed. It is deliberately designed to be solid but nevertheless compact. Generously dimen- sioned linear guides are spaced wide apart in all three axes. 6 ball bearing skates each in X and Y-axis give the best possible grip. In addition, large diameter high-precision recirculating ballscrews are used to trans- mit the drive forces to the axes and the massive but compact travelling slides are designed with very short distances be- tween each set of linear guide rails to di- rectly convey the metal cutting forces and ensure excellent precision. The arrangement of the motor spindle, in- tegrated at the centre of the Z-slides and symmetrical with the Y and X-slides, guar- antees a clean, symmetrical flow of force.

The whole construction is generously de- signed , indeed overdimensioned. It en- sures the best stability and precision, even in the case of rough conditions, through- out a long machine life.

800W Duro is suitable for work ranging from powerful roughing to dynamic lining and finishing tasks on free form surfaces. It is designed to finish large and also heavy workpieces economically.

Worktables adapted to your needs

The massive machine base and the modular construction make the VCP 800W Duro and the VCP 1000 Duro versatile machining centres. They can be perfectly adapted to the most varied production tasks. The massive mounting surfaces on the polymer concrete base make it possible to equip it with various worktables with large clamping surfaces, solutions based on customer requirements are also possible. As the worktable remains station- ary the machine dynamics are not influenced, even in the case of a high workpiece weight.

UCP 800 Duro

A five-axis high-performance machining centre, that is also capable of heavy metal removal. The generously di- mensioned round swivel table is fitted directly on the massive mounting surfaces of the polymer concrete base. Thanks to the construction with the travel movements by the tool and the rotation and swivel axis in the table, there are constant mass ratios for the dynamics and acceleration. The UCP 800 Duro is as well suited for 5-axis simultaneous machining work as it is for 5-sided machining operations. Thanks to its great clamping force on the rotation and swivel axis, it is also suitable for heavy 3-axis machining jobs in regulated operations. The round swivel table is optimally matched to the basic machine from its size, its carrying capacity and its dynamics. Thus 3, 4 and even 5-axis machining jobs are possible, from powerful roughing to accurate finishing work on free form surfaces. The UCP 800 Duro is designed to be able to finish large and heavy workpieces economically.
